Wholesale retail giant Coscto is warning consumers about a coupon scam that thousands of people have shared on social media.

Much like that of the Marlboro cigarette scam which began circulating online in 2015, this new scam has fooled many online users into sharing the photo of a $75 coupon.

Costco recently responded on social media to clarify that it is a scam and that the company is not giving away $75 coupons.

If you see a post sharing a fake Costco coupon, or the Marlboro cigarette post that has begun to reappear online, you're encouraged to report the post via Facebook's reporting tool.
